About The Wedding Officiant 

I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service during your wedding ceremony. I opened the business in 2007, hoping to help couples make their wedding day a momentous and grand one.

I am a professional non-denominational wedding officiant for celebrations in and around the metro Atlanta, Georgia. For me, customers' needs are of utmost importance, and I'm committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of my clients are from referrals.


There is no set price for my wedding services. My fees are based on different factors such as travel, date, time, location, etc. Rest assured that my rates are more reasonable than any other service available in the state of Georgia.


I also guarantee that you will be very happy with my degree of professionalism. A fluent native Spanish speaker, I can host the wedding ceremony in English, Spanish, or in both languages. There is no need for a translator!

Reservation Conditions

The required deposit of 50% or any payment made of the quoted fee to obtain a ceremony service will confirm a definite reservation and
it's non-refundable.


The deposit payment will be applied towards the non-refundable quoted fee. Full payment will be required for any ceremony reservation 15 days prior to the wedding date. The couple is responsible for obtaining their marriage license and have it ready for the wedding officiant before the ceremony begins.


It’s imperative to begin the ceremony promptly at the time agreed upon. Due to scheduling constraints, I may not be available to begin the ceremony past that time or there will be an additional minimum charge of $25 for waiting time, for every 15 minutes. The first 15 minutes of waiting time are free.


Note: An additional $100 fee will be charged if I do not receive a 30-day written notice prior to your wedding date for any changes or cancellations. There may also be a change in the price quoted if the venue is relocated or rescheduled to a different date.


If you would like to use part of my 40 years of experience in the wedding industry, I would be happy to stage, direct, or attend your rehearsal. Please know that there will be an additional charge as it would involve additional time, meetings, travel, and expenses on my part.


Please remember, no wedding will be scheduled and reserved until I receive the required deposit payment. I’m now accepting payment via Venmo. If you prefer to make a payment with a major credit card, please add a $10.00 convenience service fee.

Marriage License – Documentation

Social Security has a rule that the bride must file an SS-5 form (a new application form showing change of name and/or marital status) within the fiscal year for tax purposes, (The SS-5 form should be filed, even if you are keeping your own name) along with an original
proof of marriage.


If you ever need to make a claim, your marriage relationship must be shown. Social Security may take a while if you rely on the mail, so we always suggest you have another proof on hand. Therefore, you may want to request two proofs of marriage.


Check with Social Security first, see if you walk it in, will they just look at it and return it to you. Don’t take a day off from work to go to the Motor Vehicle Bureau and any of the other places until you have an original marriage certificate in hand.
